SEOUL, Feb. 26 (Yonhap) -- Chung Mong-joon, a seven-term lawmaker of the ruling Saenuri Party, said Wednesday he will announce his bid for mayor of Seoul next week.
Chung, 62, has long been regarded as one of three ruling camp figures with a strong chance of winning their party's nomination to run for Seoul mayor in the June 4 local elections for mayors, governors, council members and education superintendents.
"I will announce my bid on Sunday," Chung told reporters after a party meeting at the Saenuri headquarters in Seoul. "It's time to stop thinking and start enjoying."
